Nebel

a misty morning ~ folding you in its embrace ~ I stand here alone

Wherever

it’s equally short ~ the distance between us ~ either here or there

Instinct

like a homing dove ~ my impulse to fly to you ~ to break from restraints

Reality check

paupers jostling ~ for worthless peacock feathers ~ in this insane world

Swallows

she has warmed his heart ~ for the briefest of moments ~ and he has touched hers

Reside

in this world’s cities ~ where we dwell on silent paths ~ amongst the hustle

Matter of scale

on a bare tree branch ~ sits a sparrow in the cold ~ we are all so small
